Furthermore, our storage sheds come complete with felt as a standard feature. Such an addition ensures optimal protection and maintenance of your stored items.
3. T&G flooring
Thicker T&G panels for the flooring offer added durability to support heavy items easily. Upgrade with our premium options that match the exceptional quality of our roofs. You may also want to consider pressure-treated ones, ensuring long-lasting protection.
4. Pressure treatment options
Pressure treatment fortifies your storage shed against the most relentless UK weather conditions. Through a vacuum treatment process, preservatives and chemicals deeply penetrate the timber. With this, it can offer superior defence and longevity.
The BillyOh 15-year guarantee backs all our pressure-treated sheds!

We’d advise against storing personal or valuable items. Also, never store damp items in your shed as this can form condensation in metal sheds and damp in wooden sheds.
